Purchase Sanctuary Limited Edition Archival Pigment Prints on 310gsm Museum Natural Fine Art Paper by J.A.W. Cooper graffiti street artist modern pop art.
"Sanctuary was created in 2013 as part of my solo show "Laid Bare" which explored vulnerability as both a source of strength and discomfort. The setting for the piece is of personal significance, a verdant cave at the top of a waterfall in Big Sur. This cave is full of stacked rocks left by previous visitors though in all of my visits I never encountered anyone inside, and so it has the air of a place of significance for many people traveling along parallel lines but not intersecting. The purpose of a "sanctuary" is to provide asylum in a time of stress or danger and this cave gave me peace at a time when I was letting go of one facet of my life and fostering the growth of a new one; the severed stag head and the fawn." - J.A.W.
